Sometimes finding the right gift can be hard, especially for the men in your life. There are only so many pairs of pants and socks they can get before they start contemplating their existence. When the guys at bakerdays got in contact asking if I’d like to try one of their Letterbox cakes for Father’s Day I knew it was a perfect match.
I really enjoy fruit, as does Eban. In fact most days I end up restricting his fruit intake because he would eat it until he exploded. My biggest worry over the last years has been the freshness of the fruit and its shelf-life, especially in the summer months. I’ve found my fruit just doesn’t last to make it worth it some weeks. When Dole offered me the chance to try their Fridge and Freezer packs I jumped at the chance of making my fruit last longer.
I’m a huge fan of Joe Wicks and his Lean In 15 series. The food in the books always looks so super yummy and so far we’ve enjoyed everything we’ve made from them. We have a few favourites, one of which I’ll share with you now but I have made a few tweaks to make them much more lunch friendly and to minimise the Weight Watchers point value while still keeping them uber yummy. Here are my Joe Wicks inspired flavoursome Turkey Mince Lettuce Mason Jars.
Dieting. I hate the word and for the around half of my life I’ve been on one diet or another. Always chopping and changing hoping to find one that gives results fast. Unfortunately I’m yet to find one of those, well one that doesn’t involve cutting out all the foods I love. With that in mind I’ve decided to go back to one I know that DOES WORK. Weight Watchers. I’m hoping to share a few recipes that I’ve tried with you all, all Weight Watchers pointed up for your convenience. So here is a delightfully tasty Red Thai Chicken Curry.
I’m not overly fond of paying for Easter eggs, I actually wrote a post about alternative Easter gifts for kids. At the end of the day, Easter is all about chocolate (if you’re not religious) so for some people the idea of giving different gifts won’t even cross their minds. Today I’m going to give you a quick way to make your own homemade Easter eggs that are a little more special than a regular store bought egg.
I hate waste, especially food waste. I think as a species we waste far too much food due to false ideals of perfect food and a false fear of “bad” food. You can’t blame food companies for scaremongering us into constantly wanting “perfect” looking food and ensuring we only give the freshest of produce to our loved ones. At the end of the day, if you throw it out and buy more then they get more money. Before you throw out that unopened pack of food check it properly and see if it has a “Use by” or a “Best Before” date. At the end best before is all about the quality not the safety of the food.
